This is a no-reserve auction. Needs a tiny bit of work.

“This rare classic is selling on a “No Reserve Auction”. The high bidder will absolutely win this truck.

Just got this rare truck in. Its a 1951 Overland Willys Jeep Flatbed Pickup. It appears to be in very good condition for the year. I have had a few of these throughout the years and they are getting harder to find and they sell fast.
This one starts right up and Purrs like a Kitten. No Smoke or engine noise and runs cool. It appears to me to be the original motor and it looks like it has been rebuilt or freshened up. It has good power for the size of the motor. The Truck drives very straight and no shakes or shimmies. It has new tires and nice aluminum wheels which greatly adds to the drive-ability. It appears that someone started to restore this and so it needs to be finished up, but the hardest parts of the restoration appear to be done. It would be a fun project and with a little work you could drive while you complete.
This would also be a great advertisement piece for your business, Imagine your company signs along the sideboards of the flatbed.
A couple of other things. It is a bit hard to shift into 2nd gear i’m not sure if its the clutch or what? I have talked to some people about it and they tell me that its my driving and that you have to “double clutch it” when you shift? Maybe you will know more about this than I do, however I wanted to disclose this. It appears that the previous owners have coated the flatbed and the floor boards with some type of coating. It looks nice and appears to be quite durable. I don’t see any major problems with rust, but there is some visible surface rust inside the door panels and on the roof on the inside of the truck (under where the headliner would be). The seat is not original but fits in the cab very well and looks good. I have the door panels that need to be covered and installed (see pictures) I also have some other misc parts that are in the picture that will go with the truck. It is missing the headliner. The headlights and taillights work but you will need to get the wipers working and a few other misc items.”

    I’m not sure how effective those lights are behind the grill… but definitely more protected there from potential damage…
